In hopes that I don’t sound like a broken record, food shortages are coming, folks. I’ve said it before and I’ll continue to say it because it seems like far too few people are taking this seriously. It’s a uniquely American trait to wait until things get really bad before reacting properly; we can look to the economic downturn and housing bubble bursting in 2008-2009 to see exactly what I mean. The writing was on the wall long before the burst but most Americans were either unaware or uncaring.
The writing on the wall about massive food shortages coming is far easier to see today than the writing on the wall in 2008. The powers-that-be are telegraphing their intentions, quite literally. Joe Biden has warned about food shortages hitting America. The World Bank has warned about food shortages spanning the globe. Even corporate media is pulling its collectivist head out of the sand for a quick burst of partial truth about food shortages on the horizon. Why aren’t more Americans getting prepared?
One important reason is because far too many Americans have grown dependent on government “fixing” major problems when they arise. This is where the 2008 economic downturn plays against us. As bad as that was, efforts by Bush and then Obama to correct the issue made it to where most Americans survived the economic crisis. By the time Donald Trump’s policies started taking effect, we were better off than we were before the downturn. That sort of relatively quick fix to a potential disaster is what Americans have come to expect.
It won’t happen this time, folks. The best we can hope for is that government will have enough breadlines to keep Americans from fully starving when the grocery stores are empty. With the economic downturn of 2008, government “fixed” it by passing legislation and bolstering the economy through artificial means. That type of solution won’t work with food shortages because you can’t eat paper money that they print. A food shortage is a tangible event because food itself is tangible and very hard to replenish once storage is depleted.
Things are already looking very bad, but the panic hasn’t started just yet. When the panic starts, shelves will empty quickly. Trucks will be attacked and emptied in areas where food is scarce. Farms will be raided by hungry marauders. Martial law will go into effect. The time to get prepared is BEFORE the panic begins.
For those who may be new to my shows or my writing, let me alert you that I have never been a “Chicken Little” alarmist. When shelves were emptying of toilet paper and many food items in 2020, I was calling for everyone to stay calm because the writing on the wall showed there would NOT be massive food shortages other than what was manufactured by the panic itself. Today, even if we do not panic yet, the food shortages are almost certain to materialize.
Let’s look at some of the events coming together to cause this perfect storm leading to massive food shortages:
- Ukraine-Russia war is cutting off grain and fertilizer supplies worldwide
- Bird flu has killed 30 million chickens and turkeys in the United States alone
- Economic recovery from Pandemic Panic Theater is still years away from fulfillment IF nothing else pops back up
- Food processing facilities have been burning down, exploding, or getting hit by planes in alarming numbers in recent weeks
- China has been hoarding wheat and rice, over 50% of the world’s supply, since the months BEFORE Covid-19 was unleashed
- The supply chain crisis has only gotten worse since it began last year
- Ethanol is being pushed for gasoline to relieve gas prices, but that means higher meat prices since there will be less feed for livestock
That’s a partial list, folks.
On today’s episode of The Midnight Sentinel, I explored the writing that is on the wall and why so many seem to be oblivious to it. In the second segment, I was joined by my lovely, brilliant, and talented co-host and wife, Tammy, to discuss what we’re doing to start growing our own food even in non-optimal conditions. In the third segment, I went back to my comfort zone and started talking politics, namely the way the Cultural Marxists have been leading us throughout the last hundred years or so towards the LGBTQIA+ supremacy agenda that we’re seeing manifesting before our eyes.
It is EXTREMELY important that we get the word out to our friends, family, and anyone we know. This seems to go against a standard operating procedure among preppers to keep our cards close to the vest and not tell anyone we’re prepping, lest they come to our doors to get our stuff, invited or not. While I see and practice the prudence of not divulging my prepper status completely, I do see a strong benefit in getting as many of our peers in order as possible. They’re going to come knocking when things are bad whether we announce our prepper status or not. Might as well get them to become self-sufficient now while they still can.
There’s another reason to get others to start prepping. The fewer people who are stuck in breadlines, the less control government will have over our communities. It behooves us to be self-sufficient as individuals within a community. That’s different from the concept of communism in which everyone is sharing in the works of a few producers.
The more people who are aware, the better off we will all be. In a post-collapse society in which alternate economies will likely rise, it behooves us to have others with whom we can trade if things get really bad.
One last note about starting now. Prices are already skyrocketing. If you’re planning to start prepping next month or later, you may find yourself as shocked as I was when I started looking at prices of items I had previously purchased. Just between February and April, the prices of many freeze dried foods I had gotten before had nearly DOUBLED. It’s not unrealistic to expect them to double again in a month or two. The downside of more people starting to prepare is that scarcity and inflation are accelerated.
Do not take that as a sign that you shouldn’t spread the word. The impact you have on friends, family, and neighbors will be negligible on the market. You want YOUR people getting the supplies while they still can. We recommend our sponsors at My Patriot Supply for this.
Stay frosty, folks. Get yourself and your family’s food situation stabilized today. And don’t forget water, energy, and ammunition. Imagine a world with desperate people around you and plan accordingly.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
The reason, you ask?
“WOLF!” has been cried too many times. 😉
Fool me once….
Big possibility the ‘bird flu’ has been engineered a la Covid ‘epidemic.’ (The use PCR to test it..)
You are wondering why Americans don’t take the “coming food shortage” seriously?? Because of bullshit articles like THIS that are not at ALL influenced by their “noble” sponsors.
No Americans don’t take it seriously; because we have known agricultural prosperity for so long. As JD pointed out this is different than Y2K, or the 2008 crash. Once the food is gone it is gone until the next harvest season, if even then.
One of Biden’s first EO’s was to block the development and production of Oil on Federal lands. Before Biden was “elected” the US became an oil exporter for the first time since 1949. That was because of the development of horizontal drilling. Now, we are having fossil fuel shortages.
Modern farming uses land to convert oil into food? Why? Because wind and solar do not have the energy density necessary to power tractors, trucks, trains and planes. No oil, no food. No food, people starve. Contrary to Marxist theology, food does not grow on store shelves.
Setting up Americans to starve was not accidental. It was done on purpose. The purpose is to create a catastrophe which is supposed to have Americans begging for government to feed and protect them. That can only be done, according to the Marxists, if Americans abandon the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and their Republic.
That remains to be seen.
what do you want people to do, drain their savings, rush to the store, and empty the selves? That would be real nice for the elderly & others who live on a fixed income, and only go to the store when they get their monthly check.
No one is taking it seriously because we have several generations of Americans that have never had to live under any type of hardship. Not since WWII has America had a national sacrifice. Average Americans call preppers lunatics and “sky is falling” types, but they really are just remembering hard times or taking heed of what those that lived through them have to teach. WHEN the food wars start even the government will go after the preppers. Fortunately most of us are prepared to repel such attacks, and have even formed small communities that will come together when the SHTF and protect our resources and ourselves from those that were convinced the party would go on forever uninterrupted.
So how many freezers can one person buy and fill? How many gardens can apartment dwellers, condo-owners, mobile home owners, etc. plant? How many urban dwellers can pick up and move? How much staples, water, canned goods can one family buy and store for a years famine? How many elderly and everyday people will be able to protect those supplies from the many predators that will come out of the woodwork to steal them?
Agreed…it is irresponsible to speak of food shortages when there’s no evidence of it. It’s a cheap click bait trick and can only lead to panic buying that can actually lead to shortages, i.e. toilet paper in the middle of COVID.
Bird flu hasn’t killed any birds, the govt. killed them all after using the faulty PCR test on the birds!
Perhaps buy some MRE’s in addition to fresh food. Try using that noggin.
Sound like being armed would be a really good idea, no?
Great point, you shouldn’t believe it all, the govt. will save you so keep doing the same thing you’ve been doing and you’ll be fine. LOL
Don’t come to my house when you’re out of food, you won’t like the greeting you get.
I am now making more than 350 dollars per day by working (nm07) online from home without investing any money. Join this link posting job now and start earning without investing or selling anything……. http://toppay44.blogspot.com
All grocery Stores in MN full to the brim. Certain items are missing, but all you need is there. Meat has sky rocketed. All groceries expensive. Granted Trucking it there has Gone way up because of Diesel cost. The Problem is in Washington. You don’t think Washington is going to get burned down when food gets scarce , think again. The congressmen and senate wont be able to hide, but the President will.
So is this coming food shortage as serious as say, “Global Warming” or “Covid”?
